Guest Speaker – Karen Bowes, Lancashire Life Education

At our meeting on 19th September, Karen Bowes from Lancashire Life Education gave a fact filled presentation, about the work they do in primary schools. She explained how, due to changes in Education, the focus is now more on relationships, friendship and respect, so the Life Education teams are in greater demand to help teachers deliver the very important aspect of life which is summed up in the acronym SCARF: Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, Friendship.

Karen works in the Lancashire area, but informed us that there are Life Education educators all over the UK managed by Coram, which is the leading life education provider in the UK.
